Title

Bus crash at Hagley Park Road and Eastwood Park Road

Description

"Three of the 52 passengers on this bus were taken to hospital yesterday after the vehicle left the road and crashed into the fence of the Ministry of Housing's legal office at the corner of Hagley Park Road and Eastwood Park Road. The accident occurred at about 9:25 am.

The three people taken to hospital were later sent home. They are Velma Anderson of 25 Sackville Road in Vineyard Town, Isabell Watson of 4a Brice Hill Lane, Kingston 7, and Vita Samuels of 10 Rudolf Burke Avenue, Kingston 10.

The driver of the bus which was travelling from Cross Roads to Duhaney Park said the accident occurred because he could not straighten the wheels after negotiating the deep bend on Hagley Park Road to enter Eastwood Park Road.

He said he then braked but the bus skidded off the road."
